This art fair was ridiculous, in that there wasn't much of interest to justify the admission fee, and the prices were NOT affordable. We were there late Saturday afternoon before several events at Seattle Center, and there were very few people...continued

This event was enjoyable and offered an excellent selection of art by a number of talented artists. I believe if this art fair becomes an annual event, it should be renamed and drop the word affordable from the title.

We really enjoyed the selection of art and atmosphere. It was nice to have 50 galleries showing the works they were most proud of. Pricing was also reasonable as well with some expensive work but appropriately so.
